    Yep! Santa brings a few pressies (maybe 6ish?) for each stocking, and all the big stuff is from Mummy and Daddy. Everything is wrapped.

    DD has a giant sack, her trike is going in there, no way I'm wrapping it!! Actually, I really should take it out of the box and put it together shouldn't I?! it might get a sheet on it or something... Hmm, might have to rethink who gives what gift, might put some of her smaller gifts in the sack instead.

    Santa never wrapped when I was a kid, we had a big sack and the toys from santa went in there.

    DH and i are having this arguement with what to do with DS's presents. when i was a kid santa always left his presents (1 largish one each from what i remember) on the end of our bed or beside the bed. DH's presents from santa were under the tree wrapped. we both want to do what was done to us!! i cant wait to sneak into his room at night and leave pressies there!

    personally i dont get the wrapped, tagged under the tree bit. some pp have said that santa uses very differnt paper to parents but i would prob forget or leave leftovers about. and who writes the tag? as DS gets older im sure he will reconise the writing.... i dont really like the idea of sacks for some reason.

    All presents under the tree are wrapped and tagged, but not the presents in the stockings.
    This year I bought different paper as last year DD1 (she's was only 5!) mentioned how Santa had the same paper as us. I told her that santa's workshop also makes all the wrapping paper even the rolls we see in the shops! Gotta be quick with those comebacks!

    When my young siblings pulled mum up on this I told them it was because Santa doesn't always have time to wrap ALL the presents so mummies and daddies have to do it to help him out sometimes. They bought it and that's the excuse she uses now lol

    Yep. Presents from Santa in this house are wrapped. We don't even have any little people in our house on Christmas day, but Santa still wraps and tags presents, even the ones for the dogs. Although truth be told they love the wrapping paper just as much as the presents!

    We don't have presents from Santa.

    All ours are wrapped, tagged and under the tree. Funny thing is we don't put them there until the kids are asleep on Christmas eve. There is never the same colour/design/size paper next to each other or two for the same person. I am very picky about how it looks. Crazy I know.

    Me too! I 'designer' style the present arrangement.
